ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys have added another kicker to the roster by signing veteran Shayne Graham.
Graham joins David Buehler, Danny Bailey and Kai Forbath, however, Buehler (hip) and Forbath (quadriceps) are injured. Bailey handled the kicking duties in Sunday’s preseason game vs. San Diego but did not have a field goal attempt.
Graham was cut by Washington after missing field goal tries from 29 and 49 yards in the first week of the preseason. He went 12-of-12 last year in New England after replacing Stephen Gostkowski.
Graham spent most of his career in Cincinnati (2003-09) but also has had stops in Buffalo, Carolina and the New York Giants. For his career he has made 208 of 242 field goal attempts (86 percent). He has 48 career touchbacks, however, with the kickoffs moved to the 35 this year that figure could improve.
It is not clear when Buehler will be able to return. He suffered the injury in practice last week. He is a weapon as a kickoff specialist but has not been consistent on field goals. Bailey has had a better percentage in camp than Buehler but has struggled more lately in camp. Forbath is on the non-football injury list and has yet to kick.
